The order will be in place for a period of two years.

The offences that Harrington admitted occurred in June and November this year.

PC Glen Crosland, based at Aylesbury police station, said: “This was a positive piece of work from PC Matthew Craker from the Wing neighbourhood team, PC Helen Rutherford from Aylesbury ICR Team 5 and myself in the Aylesbury neighbourhood team.

“We took a proactive approach in dealing with an ongoing problem that had been subjecting the residents of High Street in Weedon to anti-social behaviour for a lengthy period of time.

“Hopefully they will now be able to get some respite from this behaviour and feel safe in their homes and as they go about their daily lives.

“Thames Valley Police will not tolerate such anti-social behaviour and will take action to prevent this from occurring through the courts where appropriate.”
